I think we should spend as much money on educating kids today, as we did on educating Abraham Lincoln when he was a kid.

His favorite 3 books were The Bible, Weem's Washington and Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan.

Here's Weem's Washington:;dq=weems+life+of+washington&printsec=frontcover&source=bl&ots=FlvgqQ8FMM&sig=EsRGWaKRPmCt-H4iiVoqmyYH-VY&hl=en&ei=xMl3So2AOZOmsgOxvfTbBA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=11#v=onepage&q=&f=false

and of course the BIBLE...

Proverbs 19

1 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless
than a fool whose lips are perverse.

2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge,
nor to be hasty and miss the way.

2 St. Peter 2:12-22

12But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.

13They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.[e] 14With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed—an accursed brood! 15They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness. 16But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—a beast without speech—who spoke with a man's voice and restrained the prophet's madness.

17These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. 18For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. 19They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. 20If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 21It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. 22Of them the proverbs are true:

"A dog returns to its vomit,"[f]and,

"A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud."

Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan:

Mark 10:17-8

Now as Jesus was starting out on his way, someone ran up to him, fell on his knees, and said, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.

--> It sounds like Jesus does not consider himself to be God.
